Fans loved the post, with many sharing how much they missed seeing the two of them together on screen.

Sharon was caught up in the ongoing The View controversy as fans were quick to draw comparisons between the two situations; Sharon, 69, was terminated from The Talk after defending Piers Morgan's criticism of Meghan Markle.

Piers himself spoke out on the controversy. "Sharon Osbourne was fired from The Talk for defending me against a fake charge of racism," he tweeted.

"Whoopi Goldberg said on The View yesterday that the Holocaust 'wasn't about race', which for Jewish people is about as racist a comment as anyone could make. Bet she doesn't lose her job." 

ABC confirmed Whoopi had been given a two-week suspension. It is thought she will return to TV screens this coming week.

The 66-year-old – who has been on The View since 2007 – issued several public apologies for claiming that the Holocaust, which saw over six million Jews across German-occupied Europe systematically murdered, was "not about race".

The View welcomed Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, onto the show, who spoke more on her allegations.

"Whoopi, there is no question that the Holocaust was about race, that is how the Nazis saw it as they sought the systematic annihilation of the Jewish people - across continents, across countries, with deliberate and ruthless cruelty," he said.
